This past week, a Michigan man filed a lawsuit against his local theater over its high snack prices. According to the Detroit Free Press, Joshua Thompson is suing AMC Livonia after he paid $8 for a Coke and a pack of Goobers (he allegedly spent $2.73 on the same items at a local drug store).

While experts claim that Thompson has no shot at winning this case ("Movie theaters are regulated, so the lawsuit won't go anywhere," said consumer lawyer Ian Lyngklip), he isn't the first individual to fight the legal battle against their local cinema.

In recent years, moviegoers have brought lawsuits against theaters over everything from lack of security to commercials playing before the film starts.

In honor of Joshua Thompson's quest for cheaper soda and candy, let's take a look at five other lawsuits against cinemas.
